Abstract

Abstract:

This essay examines Ibn Khaldūn's Muqaddima in tandem with an examination of Khayr al-Dīn al-Tūnisī's The Surest Path and the Tunisian constitutions of 1861 and 2014. It demonstrates that Tunisian political thought has been, and continues to be, profoundly influenced by Ibn Khaldūn's cyclical account of dynastic rule and his concept of 'aṣabiyya.
